There is much common ground shared by employer and trade union members of the Sustainability Issues Working Group on the values relating to sustainability in HE.
Members of the working group have explored the extent of shared values and see the ten values outlined below as underpinning the sustainability of institutions. Sustainability is important in establishing confidence among all stakeholders, including students, research commissioners and staff. It is also central to the build up of expertise among staff and institutional reputation.
